Instructions for the Perfect Hard-Boiled Egg
18 mins (prep 5, cooking 13)
2 ingredients
1 servings
Last weekend I undercooked my hard-boiled eggs and decided instead of putting them back on the stove I should save time and microwave them for a minute. Well, the eggs exploded (I salvaged the pieces). Now you know why my nickname is Runs with Scissors. Ironically, I came across instructions for hard-boiled eggs in The Amish Cook at Home just as I was getting ready to make more. The Amish Cook says cooking a hard-boiled egg isn't as simple as throwing it into a pot of water because the timing is important (you don't want an overcooked or undercooked egg). Thanks to the Amish, my shells came off easily, the eggs cooked perfectly, and I didn't microwave anything.
